Racial and Ethnic Survey, 1972.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
Reports submitted by local school districts and intermediate education district offices were reviewed, analyzed, and compared to previous surveys. Information was obtained about all students K-12 and all school personnel, including aides and community agents. The survey information was analyzed to determine what, if any, changes had been made in the racial and ethnic composition of students and school district employees. Information regarding the racial and ethnic distribution of students by district and county, the racial and ethnic distribution of school personnel, the enrollment patterns of minority students in 10th, 11th, and 12th grades by district and county, and the total K-12 statewide minority enrollment as compared to the statewide number of seniors were presented in tabular form. A summary of the data indicated (1) that Spanish-surname and Russians showed the greatest increase in enrollment patterns; (2) that over the past 2 years, the proportion of Black students remained consistently segregated, particularly at the elementary level; (3) that Spanish-surname and American Indians were also racially isolated; (4) that the number of minority educators was low; (5) that there was an urgent need for the establishment of a statewide data collection system pertinent to school achievement, reading and mathematics scores, dropout rate, and follow-up on minority students; and (6) that there had been a stabilization in enrollment patterns over the past year.
